Every Thursday morning at 7:15am on the Lite Rock Morning Show, the Humane Society of Ocean City brings in the new Lite Rock Pet of the Week.

If you are thinking about adding a pet to your family, please consider adopting from the Humane Society of Ocean City, a no-kill shelter recognized as one of the nation’s top ten animal shelters.

All of the animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped before adoption. All animals also receive an Alumni Card which entitles them to a 10% lifetime discount for veterinary services at the Humane Society of Ocean City clinic.

This week we met “Willie” the dog. Willie is a 6-8 month old black Labrador Retriever mixed with a Basset Hound. Basically he looks like a really short black lab.

Here is some information on Willie from the Humane Society of Ocean City:

“Willie came to the HSOC on July 2nd, 2016 after a long trip of more than a day…in a crate coming up from Georgia. He is really cute, but also a bit silly looking as he is a black Labrador Retriever mixed with a Basset Hound. Basically he looks like a really short black lab.


Willie is 6-9 months of age and full of puppy energy and behaviors. He is slightly behind the maturity curve and will need the full run on potty training, social behavior, and leash training, just as any puppy would. He is a smart and interactive pooch, very people-oriented. He seems to like other dogs just fine, wanting to run and play with them and should be okay with cats.


Willie should be great in any home, but would likely be best off with younger children (~8 & up) and/or other dogs. “Silly Willie” is absolutely a wonderful young dog waiting to find his forever family, come on down and see Willie today!!.”

If you would like to visit Willie or need more information about any animal up for adoption at The Humane Society of Ocean City, call 609-399-2018 or stop in any day between 11a-3p.To adopt from the HSOC you will need one form of identification, which includes your name, permanent address and proof of ownership (i.e., local tax stub).

If you rent, written approval from your landlord is required as well as personal identification.The adoption fee is $50.00 for cats or kittens and $85 for dogs, adults and puppies.

They accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and debit cards. Checks are accepted upon management’s approval. All adoptions include spay/neuter surgery, microchip if requested, free first vet exam, and all necessary vaccinations through the first year. Adoption applications are available at the shelter.
